Welcome aboard and good luck on the journey. You can always retire where it's legal. My buddy punched out Feb 1st and I don't think he's put his bong down since then.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often? Blues

Who are your favorite bands? Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, Stones (you know the drill haha)

What inspired you to start playing guitar? Played piano as a kid and wanted to move over to guitar because it was cooler to get chicks :P. Plus I liked the sound of it better and wanted a portable instrument.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? Back in the day, but I wouldn't really call it a "band" lol. Mostly just jamming buddies.

Why do you play guitar? I like to make music, I like the way guitar sounds, I get satisfaction from playing the songs I like, I get even more satisfaction when I am able to make up original music that sounds cool (still working on this part).

What are your goals for the future? Be able to solo along the entire fretboard and make my own original leads so I can jam more effectively than just playing rhythm, Play speedy legato style (not necessarily be an uber shredder, but do it well enough that people will say "Wow, dude can play!" :D ), Improve my music theory- I want to understand how to play, not just parrot other people by learning their jam.

Taylor 214ce-K Deluxe,   Orangewood Brooklyn, Seagull S6 Mahogany Cedar

The Taylor for practice, the Seagull for home office 5 minute breaks(COVID you know), the Orangewood doesn’t deserve the abandonment she had experienced once I got the Taylor,  I worked with her the first 6 -7 months and she served me well.

What inspired you to start playing guitar? Long time desire, and when we went empty nest started casting around for something to do.  It has turned out to be one of my better decisions.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? I wish

Why do you play guitar?  Fun, good idea to have this type of activity to make sure all my parts are in working order as I go through life, impressing the chicks. I also hike, thinking about carrying a guitar on a AT thru hike once I get the last daughter out of college. 

What are your goals for the future? To play in front of people for money(doesn’t matter how much) and have them like it and want to see me perform again
